Gbenga Daniel is alleged to have misappropriated or diverted N58 billion; Alao Akala,N25 billion and Aliyu Akwe Doma, N18 billion.

Sources hinted that both Saraki, Ohakim, Sheriff, Shekarau and Shinkafi are currently exploiting their network of highly placed friends to lobby the EFCC to back down on their planned arrest.

“I am can confirm to you that at the moment, the other Governors like Saraki, Shinkafi, Shekarau, Sheriff and Ohakim are lobbying their friends in Government to escape arrest but from what I know, I don't see that happening because the President has no room for such at the moment.”

According to the source who would not want to be named, “as far as I know, President Jonathan has told his aides he is not interested in interceding for anyone of the former Governors and no one should use his name or office for such purpose.”
